T.J. Brodie recorded an assist in Calgary's 4-3 overtime victory on Monday.

Brodie has six goals and 24 points in 36 games this season. He's been remarkably consistent this season as he hasn't experienced a point drought of more than three games.

Jiri Hudler picked up two more helpers in Calgary's 4-3 win over LA on Monday night.

Through 35 games Hudler has 20 assists and 33 points, good for second on the team.
Dec 23 - 3:59 AM

Dennis Wideman picked up two assists in Monday's big 4-3 win over LA on Monday night.

Wideman wasn't a big factor in either goal he tallied a secondary assist in, but they count just the same. He now has 11 assists and 21 points this season, and yet is third on his own team among defenders.
Dec 23 - 3:54 AM

Mark Giordano scored the 4-3 winner in overtime Monday night to end Calgary's eight game losing streak in LA.

Giordano took a head-man pass from TJ Brodie and forced his way around Jeff Carter and through to the net for the winner. The Captain continues to lead all defensemen in points with 34, and is tied with Brent Burns and teammate Dennis Wideman for most goals by a defenseman with 10.
Dec 23 - 3:50 AM

Johnny Gaudreau scored his first career NHL hat trick in Monday night's big come-from-behind win over LA, which ended Calgary's eight game losing streak.

Johnny Hockey led the charge over a 21 minute span in the game's final 22 minutes to tie the game at three. His first was a power play tally one-timer after it deflected off of LA's Jarret Stoll. the second was a calm loop around the net as he slid it five-hole through a sprawling Jon Quick. The third though, was an errant pass to a would-be nobody and instead went off of Drew Doughty's skates and in. Lastly, the final two goals came with Hiller pulled. He now has 10 goals and 27 points.
Dec 23 - 3:44 AM

Jonas Hiller's soft start was bailed out as the Flames erased a 3-0 deficit to beat LA 4-3 in overtime.

The Kings were up 3-0 just 24:32 into the game, and Hiller only stopped 31-34 shots, but it turned out to be the right recipe for a dramatic first win in eight games. The win was also Hiller's first in seven starts.
Dec 23 - 3:27 AM

Brandon Bollig will draw back into the Flames lineup Monday against the Kings.

After sitting out December 20th, Bollig will take Josh Jooris' spot on the wing with Matt Stajan and Lance Bouma. Bollig hasn't exactly earned a roster spot with two assists and a minus seven rating in 28 games, but coach Bob Hartley will give him another chance.
Dec 22 - 9:00 PM

Jonas Hiller has been confirmed as Calgary's starting goalie for Monday's game against Los Angeles.

There was a conflicting report earlier that Karri Ramo would be getting the nod, but that won't be the case. Hiller hasn't won a game since Nov. 18 and he's coming off a 3-2 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.
Dec 22 - 3:55 PM

Josh Jooris won't play Monday night due to an upper-body injury.

He didn't take part in the morning skate and could be dealing with a couple of injuries. Jooris played Saturday even though he was wearing a protective boot in the morning after blocking a shot. He apparently sustained an upper-body injury versus Vancouver.
Dec 22 - 2:38 PM

The Calgary Flames will play an important contest against the Los Angeles Kings on Monday.

Calgary got off to a terrific start this season, but much of that early success has been squandered due to its eight-game losing streak. This game will be the Flames' last before the holiday, so obviously if they don't win it, they'll have to deal with the feelings of being in the midst of a nine-game drop throughout the break. "This morning, I told them, 'I know it’s one game out of 82, but the last game before Christmas, I think it's always special,'" Hartley said. "You're going home. Your families will be around and, many times, they talk to you about your last game."

Jonas Hiller will be between the pipes when the Flames visit the Kings on Monday.

Hiller has allowed a dozen goals in five starts against the Kings since 2012, though he's only won two of those decisions. Each of those starts came when he was with Anaheim.
Dec 21 - 7:49 PM

Josh Jooris managed to play on Saturday despite wearing a protective boot in the morning.

Jooris blocked a shot on Friday. He is having a surprisingly good rookie season in the NHL and apparently it's going to take more than a sore foot to keep him out of the lineup. Jooris was a minus-one with a boarding minor Saturday. He has eight goals and 13 points in 28 games but has not scored a goal in his last nine games, since his hat trick against Arizona on December 2.

Johnny Gaudreau got a goal for the Flames in their 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks on Saturday night.

Gaudreau’s goal at 7:05 tied the game up at 2 in the third period. The 21-year-old rookie now has seven goals and 24 points this year, certainly solid numbers from someone with such limited experience at the pro level. David Jones scored the other marker.
Dec 21 - 1:18 AM

Jonas Hiller made 30 saves as the Flames fell 3-2 in overtime to the Canucks on Saturday night.

This effort should be plenty good enough to get Hiller the majority of the starts in the near future. Even though he hasn’t won since Nov. 18, Hiller has given up two goals in each of his last three starts. He has a 2.38 goals-against average and .915 save percentage.
